Our stack includes Ruby Enterprise, Rails 3, nginx, MySQL, Riak, Redis and a few other obscure but cutting edge piece of artillery, you need to learn, understand, poke, debug and optimize our infrastructure with the help of the dev and operation leads. We support diversity, VI or Emacs, we don’t care.

Show us you are eager and authentic. Good hints have been provided to us in the past in the form of sourceforge, github, stackoverflow or slashdot usernames (you get the idea).

Cultural fit will be assessed, previous experience in zombies, internet memes and sci-fi would help you survive our work atmosphere. But you never know, we’ve had muppets, pop songs from the 80s and punk references thrown at interns to really test them…
